Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between introductory lessons on creativity and the creativity displayed in students' finished clothing projects. The sample consisted of 22 students in the experimental group and 26 students in the control group at the intermediate level in high school clothing construction. A measure was developed to evaluate the quantity of creative production evident in finished garments. The control and the experimental groups were each administered two tests of creative ability from the Sheridan Psychological Service, Inc. The experimental groups received lessons designed to give experiences in creative ideas applicable to clothing construction. Statistical analysis of the data included the coefficient of correlation used to study the relationship of the creative lessons to creative production exhibited in the finished garments; the regression coefficient was used to compare the pre and post tests on predictability of creativity in constructed garments. The study showed no statistical difference between lessons on creativity and the creative production in the constructed clothing items in both the experimental and control groups. (Visual evidence in the garments in one class indicated the lessons on creativity increased the creative production of some students.) No significant correlation was found between creative ability of the students and the creative production of the students' garments.
